This overview describes the research of Nobutu Yamamoto (Philadelphia) concerning immunotherapy with GcMAF for patients with cancer and for patients infected with pathogenic envelope viruses. GcMAF (Group-specific component Macrophage-Activating Factor) is a mammalian protein with an incredible potency to directly activate macrophages. Since the late 1980s Yamamoto's investigations were published in numerous journals but in order to understand the details of his research, a minute survey of many of his patents was required. But even then, regrettably, a precise description of his experiments was sometimes lacking. This overview tries to summarize all of Yamamoto's research on GcMAF, as well as some selected more recent papers from other investigators, who tried to verify and/or reproduce Yamamoto's reports. In my opinion the most important result of the GcMAF research deserves widespread renewed attention: human GcMAF injections (100 ng per week, intramuscular or intravenous) can help to cure patients with a great variety of cancers as well as patients infected with pathogenic envelope viruses like the human immunodeficiency virus 1 (HIV-1), influenza, measles and rubella (and maybe also SARS-CoV-2). From Yamamoto's data it can be calculated that GcMAF is a near-stoichiometric activator of macrophages. Yamamoto monitored the progress of his immunotherapy via the serum level of an enzyme called nagalase (α-N-acetylgalactosaminidase activity at pH 6). I have extensively discussed the properties and potential catalytic site of this enzyme activity in an Appendix entitled: "Search for the potential active site of the latent α-N-acetylgalactosaminidase activity in the glycoproteins of some envelope viruses".
